A trilogy that will not die, 22 May 2005
The third in the Garth Nix Trilogy about the supernatural adventures of Sabriel, Lirael, Touchstone, Mogget, The Disreputable Dog, Sanar, Ryelle, Ellimere and Sameth. They are the only ones who can re-establish what the seven strove to do long before.
This is a book about magic, supernatural creatures, the fight to overcome destruction by an evil force and cameraderie.
I loved this book because all the characters are colourfully described and the story was well structured, well written and compulsive.
This trilogy was the best read I have read for a long time. It is suitable for the ages of 11-17 years old. Start with Sabriel and read them in the correct order or you will be confused.
If you have read the first two books of the trilogy: Sabriel and Lirael then you will love Abhorsen. In fact if you read the first two, you won't be wondering whether to buy Abhorsen, but how quickly you can get your hands on it. If you haven't started this trilogy yet then you should.... you will not be dissappointed if you like supernatural fictional adventure.
